At 11:25 Calder Valley Search & Rescue Team received its first callout request of the day from Yorkshire Ambulance Service to assist with an injured male mountain biker who had fallen from his ride in the Oxenhope area.  Very shortly after the full team callout had started, we received news that the ambulance crew with assistance from some very kind members of the public had helped the injured rider to the ambulance. The team were promptly stood down.

However at 11:50 CVSRT received a second request for assistance from Yorkshire Ambulance Service and West Yorkshire Police to locate a female walker near Stoodley Pike who had slipped on black ice sustaining a very painful ankle injury.

20 CVSRT members were available to respond and immediately made their way to the location. Once on-scene team members treated the casualty for an isolated ankle injury, providing pain relief and splinting. Once the casualty was more comfortable, she was packaged and transferred by stretcher to a road ambulance for onward journey to hospital.
